Into The Deep Card by Mandy C


Archival Ink ~ Black, Yellow, Aquamarine, Russet, Olive
Card Blank


·       Firstly, using your mask, draw around it onto your card and cut out the 6x6 square. Paint with the satin DecoArt. Dry with a heat tool. Use your texture paste through the whole of the mask. I chose this mask as I thought it looked like sea anemones. Leave to dry.

·       Meanwhile, stamp your images onto the stamping card. I stamped the captain, anchor, the shells, crab, seahorse, words and starfish in black. Then used the other colour inks to stamp the shells, crab, seahorse, starfish and two lots of the seaweed (it may be coral but I’m using it as seaweed J).

·       Cut your images out and the ones you have both black and colour of, create a shadow effect putting the black underneath the colour image and slightly to one side. Glue into position.

·       Go back to your background which should be dry, if not, give it a blast with the heat tool.

·       Spray with the inksprays and dry.

·       Stamp the script randomly across the background using black Archival. With all the texture you can bearly see it.

·       I also stamped along the bottom of the card, using a different seaweed stamp from the set.

·       Arrange your stamped images onto the background to see how you’d like them.  Glue into place with the Cosmic Shimmer… this is excellent glue for gluing onto textured surfaces.

·       Use your PanPastels across the texture paste

·       Edge your card with the black Archival and stamp some random cogs around the edge to create a frame.

·       Finally, using a black watercolour pencil, create some definition around the central set of images to make them ‘pop’.

·       Adhere to your card blank. J
